Victor Ketelslegers



Victor Ketelslegers was born in Brussels (Belgium) and discovered his interest in dance and ballet already as a child. He received his training in classical and contemporary dance at the Royal Ballet School of Antwerp. Victor gained his first stage experience in classical ballets, such as "La Bayadère" (Petipa), and in pieces by contemporary choreographers such as Ihsan Rustem, Altea Nuñez, Juliet Burnett among others. He intensified his dance education in various styles in numerous workshops, including the movement technique "Gaga" coined by Ohad Naharin, and studied works by choreographers such as William Forsythe, Jiřì Kylian, Crystal Pite, Marco Goecke, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, among others. Victor Ketelslegers is also active as a film actor. In 2018, he shone in the role of the trans girl Lara in the multi-award-winning feature film "Girl" (including the jury prize Un-Certain-Regard for Best Actor) by Belgian director Lukas Dhont, which premiered at the Cannes International Film Festival. Victor Ketelslegers has been a company member of the Staatstheater Nürnberg Ballet since the 2020/2021 season.
